Stew and Brew with Tim Milroy from Gage Roads
Not only is Tim Milroy the Alby man around town, he’s also pretty handy in the kitchen!
Tim joined Oliver Peterson today and shared some ways to cook with beer.
It’s a great way to punch up the flavour on a marinade for braised ribs, or long and slow cooking and barbecues
Replace the sparkling water in the mix with beer for a light and crisp batter on your fish n chips
BEER CAN CHICKEN
A whole chicken with a beer can up its bum. You open the beer, sit the chook on top of it and pop in in the oven or weber. During the cook, the beer evaporates and keeps the meat moist, while imparting that beer flavour through the chicken
Beer adds great flavour to a braise and slow cooking stew. Instead of using red wine, use a can of beer and slow cook it down.
